Website Design Job Estimate Powered By Docstoc
					This form is completed by the client of a website designer in order to assist the designer
in providing an accurate estimate. The client specifies how they want the website set
up, the design of the website, graphic features, flash capability, website content, public
features, e-commerce, and admin features. Beside each website feature, this form
provides the estimated time required for the designer to create the feature. However,
the time estimates can be customized to reflect the knowledge, skill, and experience of
each designer who uses this form. This form is ideal for small businesses that offer
website design services and want to record client requests in order to provide an
accurate estimate.
                                   Website Design Job Estimate
[Instruction: This following form can help give an initial estimate of the hours that will be
required to design a website. This form should be filled out by a prospective client.]

[Note: When this document is used, a client should be made aware that this is a preliminary
estimate only. Once the client has filled it out completely, the designer will have a much more
accurate idea of the total time that will be required, and he or she can write a follow-up, binding
and specific, work agreement.]

[Note: Of course, each individual website designer can do certain specific tasks more quickly or
more slowly than the below estimates. The estimated hours should be adjusted, to reflect the
knowledge, skill, and experience of each designer who uses this form.]

and no general information or forms or like the kind Docstoc provides can always correctly fit every circumstance.

Note: Carefully read and follow the Instructions and Comments contained in this document for your customization to suit your specific
circumstances and requirements. You will want to delete the Instructions and Comments from open bracket (“[“) to close bracket (“]”)
after reading and following them. You (or your attorney) may want to make additional modifications to meet your specific needs and the

◊ Where within this document you see this symbol: ◊ or an instruction states “Insert any number you choose◊,” or something similar, or
there is a blank for the user to complete, please note that although Docstoc believes the information or number may be any that the user
chooses, and that there is no law governing what the information or number should be, you might want to verify this, including by
consulting with your own attorney practicing in your state. Because the law is different from jurisdiction to jurisdiction and the laws are
subject to change, Docstoc cannot guarantee—and disclaims all guarantees—that it is correct for the information or number to be
anything that the user chooses.

The information, forms, instructions, tips, comments, decision tree alternatives and choices, reports, and services in and through Docstoc
are not legal advice, but are general information / forms on general issues often encountered designed to help Docstoc users, members,
purchasers, and subscribers address their own needs. But information, including tips, general forms, instructions, comments, decision
tree alternatives and choices, and reports, no matter how seemingly customized to conform to the laws and regulations applicable to you,
is not the same as legal advice, which may be the specific application of laws and regulations by lawyers licensed to practice law in your
state to the specific circumstances and needs of individuals and entities. Some states, counties, municipalities, and other governmental
divisions, have highly specific laws and regulations, and our information / forms / reports may not take all those specific laws and
regulations into consideration, although we tried to do so.

Docstoc is not a law firm and the employees and contractors (including attorneys, if any) of Docstoc are not acting as your attorneys, and

instruction, tips, comments, decision tree alternatives and choices, and reports were most likely NOT prepared or reviewed by an
attorney licensed to practice law in your state, and, therefore, the employees or contractors could not provide you with legal advice even
if they or Docstoc wanted to. Even though we take every reasonable effort to attempt to make sure our information / forms / reports are
accurate, up to-date, and useful, we recommend that you consult a lawyer licensed to practice law in your state if you want professional
